Halo - Master Chief by Paul-Shanghai Halo - Master Chief by Paul-Shanghai
From the epic Halo game series I give you, Master Chief Petty Officer John-177 - In Pencil no less :)

Along with this epic video game series, this was an epic drawing, you never really understand how much detail is involved in these characters until you try to draw them, my hat goes off to the original artists who create these fantastic characters from scratch - they have enormous imaginations and have incredible attention to detail.

Anyway, loved drawing this one - on Bristol Board Smooth A3 Size paper, usual mix of mechanical and traditional pencils - with one exception.... I normally use a Faber Castell 8B for the very dark areas and 'black-outs', this time I have used Steadler Mars Lumograph 8B which gives that very dark black without any of the shine from the Faber Castell - it is not as easy to blend or fade, but is great for making black - really black :) The only other unusual tool used was 'Tipp-Ex' for the stars! Time - about 20 hours.

Well I have never sold an original piece before, and would not like to put a value on it - are you looking to buy the original or a print?
